Sports update – Hockey



The Year 7 & Year 8 Hockey teams have played their first friendly fixture against Selwood, in preparation for the Mendip Hockey Tournament later this month.  For many of the girls, it was their first experience in playing a Hockey match against another School.  Abi Royston and Daisy McIntrye saved many goals on their first Goalkeeping practice, not conceding any goals.  Rachel Braes played Goalkeeper for Year 8 and had a good match, getting her practice in using the Goalkeeper’s kit.  Emily Ramsay and Lydia Powell did great work in defence, with Milly Baker and Tilly Kempshall doing some fantastic work in Midfield and as Forwards.  It gave the girls some valuable learning and they developed their competitive spirit, ready for their challenge in a few weeks time.  Both teams enjoyed their games and showed some good teamwork. Well done girls.
